Intellectual Nourishment

The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don't know what you are doing, someone else does.

In the Bleak Mid-Winter

By Christina Rossetti
In the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter
Long ago.

Our God, Heaven cannot hold him
Nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away
When he comes to reign:
In the bleak mid-winter
A stable-place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty
Jesus Christ….

What can I give him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring him a lamb,
If I were a Wise Man
I would do my part,-
Yet what I can I give him,
Give my heart.
